Davide Santon: 'Newcastle United fans right to boo us'

Newcastle United's Davide Santon says that the supporters were right to boo the team following Saturday's defeat to Southampton.

Newcastle United full-back Davide Santon has admitted that he and his teammates deserved the boos that they suffered from their own fans against Southampton at the weekend.

The Magpies' followers expressed their discontent at St Mary's following Newcastle's 4-0 defeat on Saturday.

"I understand the fans' reaction at the end," Santon told the club's official website. "I went over to say thank you, as I always do, and they booed, but I understand because they deserve more from us, and they are right.

"We looked like we played with no passion and we just want the season to finish. That isn't true, but we were not good enough.

"It could have been 8-0 or 9-0, and it doesn't have to be like this."

Newcastle are currently ninth in the Premier League table.
